You do not need work experience necessarily, to be admitted. Work experience obtained after graduation is preferred, however, applicants in the final year of graduation who demonstrate maturity and leadership through their personal experiences are encouraged to apply.

There is no age limit for entry. However, the programme is most suitable for those who are at an early stage in their career with an experience range of zero to five years. If you have more work experience, we encourage you to get in touch with the admissions team for consultation with one of our Masters, who will evaluate your profile and advise you accordingly.

As a candidate with less than 2 years of experience, you will not compete for jobs with senior folks. Companies offer jobs relevant to different experience bands, and you, at best, compete in a narrow experience band of, say, 0-2 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5-8 yrs, 8+ years and so on. An organisation may offer different roles based on your skills and past experience.

We value diversity at every level. We welcome applications from people with a variety of professional and academic backgrounds, including the arts, law, medicine, military, non-profit, etc. As with all candidates, we will be looking for you to demonstrate your potential as a leader, and we will consider your professional experience and past performance when assessing your application.

Yes. While the vast majority of our participants have undergraduate and/or advanced degrees, this is not compulsory for admission. Candidates who do not hold an undergraduate degree, but who have an excellent career record and GMAT score are also welcome to apply.

Union does not have a minimum GPA requirement as the GPA system is not a globally used grading methodology. We primarily look at the courses taken and the grades received in each course, in addition to the overall academic performance.

Unsuccessful applicants may reapply for the next intake. Please exercise your own judgement in deciding if you have any significant changes in your new profile since your first application that will make a difference with the Admissions Committee. All re-applicants are requested to submit a new online application unless otherwise indicated.

In the large majority of cases, no. You should apply for the intake in which you intend to enrol. In truly exceptional circumstances, the Admissions Committee may grant a deferral. All requests should be made in writing and will be reviewed on a case -to- case basis.

To be included in a specific round, applications must be completed and submitted by midnight IST on the day of the deadline. A complete application includes the online form, valid test scores, English test scores (if applicable), all supporting documents, letters of recommendation, essays and payment of the application fees. For more details please visit Supporting Documentation, under Application Checklist.

Each round is equally competitive as the ratio of acceptance is the same for all rounds. When choosing a round in which to apply, the most important consideration is to dedicate enough time and thought to your application so that it accurately represents your strengths and talents. However, we encourage you to apply to Round 1 if scholarships are a priority.

The 2 Lakh deposit is refundable only in case of successful completion of the programme by the student.

The admission fee, also referred to as the token fee, is non-refundable and will not be returned under any circumstances.

In case a student has to withdraw from the programme after the commencement, for either academic, personal or administrative reasons, only 50% of the tuition fee will be refunded on a pro rata basis.

No refund shall be made in case a student is expelled from the programme on disciplinary grounds.

In the case that there is a reduction in your hostel occupancy period by more than a month, due to late commencement of the programme, a refund will be made on a pro rata basis at the end of the programme. However, a refund will not be applicable if the programme is extended beyond November 2021 to compensate for a late start, since the net occupancy period will remain the same in that case.

No refund shall be made if you choose to spend your 3-month industry interface module outside Gurugram, since the hostel charges correspond to your holding the property for a continued period of 16 months. A pro rata refund can be made only for the laundry and catering charges (in case it has been paid for upfront) if you choose to pursue your industry interface module outside Gurugram.

No refund shall be made in case a student is made to evacuate the hostel on disciplinary grounds.

Currently, we are not offering the option to defer the admission offer. Those who cannot join the programme in the current year are advised to apply again for the next year.

Admission
Policies

MU-BAAT scores will be valid only for the year in which the test was taken. The test helps us assess one’s logical reasoning, critical thinking and verbal abilities and aids in the shortlisting process.

If the applicant misses both the rounds of a particular intake, the application form and its entire contents will expire. At this point, the applicant will be required to complete a new application from scratch, for the next intake.

To be included in a specific round, applications must be completed and submitted by 23:59 IST on the day of the deadline. A complete application includes the online application along with supporting documents.

PS: Letter(s) of recommendation need to be submitted before the stated deadline. Failure to do so, would lead to dismissal of the candidate's application for the current round.

An application will only be evaluated once it is complete. If it is completed after the deadline, it will be reviewed for the next round or (in the case of last round applicants) the following intake.

Due to the large number of applications we receive for each intake, and the confidentiality of the deliberations of the Admissions Committee, we would be unable to provide detailed individual feedback on unsuccessful applications.
